The Association of Northwest Weavers’ Guilds creates new fiber explorations
Exploring Fiber Horizons was the title of the Association of Northwest Weavers' Guilds (ANWG) conference held in June 2010 in Salem, Oregon. The challenge offered was to "look into the future to see where we are going as fiber artists . . . [and] weave the creativity of the past into your fiber explorations-the sky's the limit." Guild booths featured environmentally friendly, reusable shopping/grocery bags that were woven, felted, knitted, crocheted, or made of basketry materials with the theme of "Our Future is in the Bag."
